The Blue Ox Axe Throwing sprouted as an idea when co-owner, Gerald Ferraro was in Minnesota for his childhood friend’s bachelor party. After partaking in the activity, Gerald and his friend believed Wallingford would be a great market for this indoor recreation. With Wallingford’s growing population and economy, it seemed to make perfect sense. Together, with his partner, Maggie Slivinski, the plan was set into to place to open Connecticut’s Premier Axe Throwing Venue. Blue Ox Axe Throwing is set to open in August 2018.
